From the poem Beowulf i cant tell if the character Grendel is truly evil I know that he is not good because he kills people yet this does not let me know that his soul is evilIn the poem Beowulf they state that Grendel is the son of Cain They tell you that his blood is evil The first thing most people would think when they hear that someone is the son of Cain is that they must be evil What i believe is different in the since that just because evil is in your blood it doesnt make you that way An example is If for two generations of a family men have been beating woman it does not mean that the third generation must do this to Another example is that just because someone was the child of two Christian parents this doesnt make the child a Christian I believe that living beings determine their own moralityI also couldnt determine if Grendel was evil due to the fact that he was an animal If Grendel is an animal and his source of food consist of humans then this would justify him killing them We kill chickens and pigs to eat and Grendel would kill humans His need to kill people is primitiveThe book Beowulf though descriptive did not give enough insight into the character Grendel The book only gives you the aspect of Beowulf and people who fear Grendel
